Blanket me in Alpaca

I have not been idle. I have in fact since the new year started, finished my pillow. It needed only to be sewn together, but it was tough. My hand were killing me it hurt so bad. But I am done, and it feels so good to have something finished. At least since I started this pillow way back in this last summer. Hence the summery colours and flowers. I realized too late that the flowers should have been ironed before being sewn on, but oh well. Looks good anyway. Sorry about the crappy quality of the picture, but it is nearly impossible to take good pictures during the winter.

And, another TA-Dah. I made a babyblanket. And I just decided that it was big enough. But the person who will receive it is not the biggest person so:P
And no, there are no babies being planned at the moment, for any of my friends or otherwise. But my kids will bloody well have to deal with pink everything that I am going to make. I do sometimes think about others and use purple or something, but _I_ am the one going all go-go eyed making the stuff, so my saying counts the most.:P So there.

And don't worry, I have already started the next babyblanket, all in alpaca yarn. Viking Superfine. It is the cuddliest of all yarns that I have ever felt or worked with. It is a delight. So it doesn't bother me that I spent the last of my birthday money on it.
(Weeeeell, to be honest it does, but never mind, I am stupid so.... Yarn is way better than candy, not chocolate, but candy anyway, and less expensive.)

And today I cuddled a baby bunny, so all in all the best day in a while. I want, no, need a bunny.:( Alas it was not an angora, but a hermelin.

I think it looks nice when the flowers are a little curled like that. Makes them seem sort of more real you know^^,

Yarns last longer than chocolate, so you get more value for your money :P
Do you have pics of all the things you couldn't post because you were giving them to people for Christmas? Now people have them, so you can show curious me, right? ^^

To Tinker: Yes, as you mention it, it does:) But I still think that the elder people in the family will not approve.

To E2: It is on the way, I am just a little lazy:P And one project is still not done, well actually three. And the potholders were not photographed sadly, but one of the unfinished projects is a potholder so when THOSE are done, you will at least see pictures of that;)

Ah, but if yarn does not last longer than chocolate when you give the yarn-project away sooner than the chocolate gets eaten?

And thank you for the comments.
